Jesse McCartney and Jackson Rathbone Among 'The Last Airbender' Cast


Pop singer Jesse McCartney is in talks to join the ensemble, and the Jasper Hale of 'Twilight', Jackson Rathbone, allegedly has been asked to play Aang's friend, Sokka, in 'The Last Airbender'.

Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan has reportedly found his cast ensemble for "The Last Airbender". In a casting report, Entertainment Weekly claimed that Jesse McCartney and Jackson Rathbone's names have popped out in the cast ensemble list for the live-action adaptation of animation series "Avatar: The Last Airbender".

While McCartney, the "Leavin'" singer who voiced JoJo in "Horton Hears a Who!", has been said to still be in negotiation for the role of Zuko, the Fire Nation's evil prince, Rathbone, who recently appeared as Jasper Hale in "Twilight", is lined-up to be Aang's pal named Sokka. Joining them are Noah Ringer who may take the main character, Aang, and Nicola Peltz who will star as Sokka's sister, Katara.

To be differentiated from James Cameron's "Avatar", "The Last Airbender" has dropped "Avatar" from its title. It tells the story of the successor to a long line of Avatars who must put aside his irresponsible ways and stop the Fire Nation from enslaving the Water, Earth and Air nations. The Paramount Pictures film eyes to hit U.S. theaters on July 2, 2010.
